Danaria Hollin can be found roaming the dock area of South Qeynos.

You say, 'Hail, Danaria Hollin'

Danaria Hollin says 'Greetings! Nice to meet someone with manners. I do not see how you people stand to live in this madhouse of ruffians. I would have left weeks ago if I were not waiting for a delivery. Oh, well. Nice to have met you.'

You say, 'What delivery?'

Danaria Hollin says 'I am in Qeynos to meet up with a fellow Erudite coming from Freeport. He is two weeks late and I fear the worst. I shall need to hire some lackey to go to Freeport to find him.'

You say, 'I will find him'

Danaria Hollin says 'Yes, that might work. Please go to Freeport and find him. His name is Palatos Kynarn. Tell him that Danaria has sent you for the painting. And be quick about it! Thank you.'

Head to East Freeport and find Palatos Kynarn. He's located in the shady part of town.

You say, 'Hail, Palatos Kynarn'

Palatos Kynarn says 'What do you want? Can't you see that I wish to be alone?! I have no need nor desire to speak with anyone. I have a minor dilemma to ponder and the only person I wish to speak with is the [captain].'

You say, 'Danaria sent me'

Palatos Kynarn says 'If you are working for Danaria, you have been misguided. You will go back to her empty handed. Now leave. The [captain] and I have some business to discuss.'

The 'captain' he speaks of is an alcoholic beverage, Capt. Orlin's Spiced Ale. This can be purchased from the bartender right next to you, Nesin Tapper.

Upon handing Palatos four drinks:


Palatos Kynarn says 'Ahh.. I.. Need help.. You.. take this.. Go build.. boat beacon. Ask gnomes about.. boat beacon. They know how.. Then bring back.. Unnnhh!! Prexus help me!! I will never drink again.'

Receive a Beacon Mount. In his drunkedness, Palatos advises you to seek out Svinal Wyspin, a Gnome merchant in the Emporium in West Freeport, at -250, -30.

You say, 'Hail, Svinal Wyspin'

Svinal Wyspin says 'Welcome, welcome, welcome! This is the Emporium. If we don't have it, we can get it!!'

You say, 'Tell me about the boat beacon'

Svinal Wyspin says 'What!!? Looking for a boat beacon? We may be getting one from Ak'Anon in about a year. You can always try to make one. Find a greater lightstone, a metal disk and a copper band. If you have a beacon mount, go to a forge and combine them all. It's not that hard, but it's not that easy, either.'

Buy the Metal Disk and Copper Band. You'll also need a Greater Lightstone. Combine those three items and the Beacon Mount in a Forge (reported trivial 70) to create a Boat Beacon.

You can do one of two things with this Boat Beacon. Turn it in to Palatos Kynarn, or to Lenka Stoutheart (found occasionally in the Grub 'n Grog Tavern at the Freeport dock). Upon turning it into Palatos, the quest is over.

Palatos Kynarn says 'Thanks.. That saved me a lot of money. Now I can spend more time with the captain before I give this back to Lenka Stoutheart. Here is a little so...mething.'

Made another boat beacon, turned into Lenka for another portrait and tried to give that Danaria in South Qeynos, but she wouldn't give me the time of day and rejected it (at apprehensive). Not sure if gaining faction will make any difference.

This painting has become a frustrating time sink for me looking for the proper NPC that will continue or end this quest. I still have many more NPCs to speak with to try handing them the portrait.

Druid and Ranger subquest for the epic? This is the wrong painting. Granted, both paintings are very obscure, but your painting involves the zones Firiona Vie, Surefall Glade and the Frontier Mountians.

Methinks the painting goes from someone in charge of Danaria Hollin, since she says she was 'sent to Qeynos' to pick up the delivery (the painting) and doesnt like Qeynos, and wants to go back to Erudin.. whatever faction she is, we should try giving her guildleader the painting!..

I also remember reading somewhere that the painting has something inside it.. ????

Captain Orbin's Spiced Ale

...Captain Orbin's Spiced Ale is the drink you give to Palatos. (4 of them). It's for sale all over the place now...sorry can't remember specific vendors but I've seen it in many towns.

I've had a painting in the bank for months, years. No leads lately? Hm I noticed the other day Danaria was wandering Qeynos and said something to another NPC. It was mundane, didn't seem like a clue. I didn't take much note, I was busy at the time. Sometime maybe I'll hang out and see if/when she wanders and make a note of everything she says.

I wish I'd made a note of it at the time! If anyone else hears her say anything to some other NPC please post it?

I spent a lot of time searching for clues in Qeynos, Freeport and Ak'Anon back in the day...it'd be cool to finally see a solution to this quest.


idea on who you give it to...
# Sep 05 2002 at 10:47 AM Rating: Decent
As far as the reward goes, maybe this is something to do with the "New head for Shakey" quest in Rivervale that is as of yet to be solved. You know, put a light source inside the jack-o-lantern's head. it would be great if someone who is deticated try this, and see the results.
Just an idea. Thank you all.

No, this is not The Painting. This is one of Cheslins Illusion Cards. There are 4 of them that can be found around Qeynos Hills, dropped by the wimpy Guard Cheslin. If you collect all 4 of them and give them back to him, you get small gold, xp, and a note to be given to his father, Chesgard Syowen of S. Qeynos, for more gold, xp, and an item. You found the card named the Library of Erudin.

The ale that Palatos needs to give you the boat beacon mount has now reappeared in the game. Several vendors have it, including one in the same zone - E Freeport.
Still get the portrait of King Ak'Anon. I will try giving it to Danaria again - she obviously asked for it. Perhaps this quest has been debugged. <crosses fingers>

The captains drink is no longer on the vendor nearby, though the erud still mentions the captain. I did this quest a lot when it was and that erud is warmly to me.
